MachIII_5004_1986Returned to Mach III for factory repair, the letters “JHG” were stamped in the housing of this multiple disc friction clutch which is used on an accumulating conveyor.  Under Mach III’s former date coding standard, this means the clutch was manufactured in October, 1987 – 28 years ago!

Designed for use at low air pressure to minimize wear, this clutch provides 2,300 pound inches of torque at just 30PSI and  includes integral 60A21 and 60B21 sprockets.  Mach III also produces combination clutch-brakes with integral double-single sprockets for chain driven live roller conveyor applications requiring a controlled stop to prevent drift of product, pallets or containers.

C3D1Q-001Developed as a retrofit replacement for a tooth clutch, this compact air actuated friction clutch provides . . .

  • 208 pound inches torque @ 80 PSI
  • 4.49 inches overall length
  • 1.0 inch bore
  • Double-single 60A19 sprockets
  • Enclosed construction 

. . . and unlike a tooth clutch, it provides a soft start and can be engaged dynamically at higher speeds.

This clutch is designed for use in a chain driven live roller conveyor.
